Blog stats


OK, I admit it - I watch my blog stats to see how many visitors I'm getting. Most people don't comment although I get random emails from people who say they read my blog all the time. I really like to hear from you - so if you read my blog please introduce yourself either by commenting or emailing me directly.

I read you blog Mary. You are in my bloglines, so I don't comment much. Also I look at your pattern website from time to time. I haven't made anything, but I do enjoy your work.

That stat graph is mighty impressive!! No wonder so many people stop by and see what you're up to because you make such great things ... but then you know I'm a fan :)

Annemiek said...

I check my stats too frequently. It's fun to see that there're sometimes visitors from e.g. Malaysia, Brasil,Taiwan.. and as I discovered: fabric manufacturers read blogs too:)
But in answer to your question: hi again from the Netherlands!

ama said...

Another bloglines reader. I use to comment but realised a year ago that I was going to have to stop reading and commenting or throw everything in a reader and quickly read that way.

I really should comment more often because I know what it means to me.

Mary, I have your blog on "My Yahoo", so I read it everyday. I am impressed by all your donations and the beautiful work you do. I belong to another Yahoo group dedicated to making "vintage-look" quilts from stash. The idea is to used up what we have without buying anything new. The group is called "Scraps and Strings".

Mary - Your blog is on my must-read list. I love seeing your work. There are a couple of quilts that I want to attempt myself - just haven't gotten up the nerve yet! I'll be out here lurking, even if I don't comment.

french-patchworker said...

It's the first time I found your blog, all the way from England, and I really enjoyed having a look around. Keep up the good work, as I wonder how you find so much energy, and finish so many things.

Mary, I read your blog everyday, I just enjoy your outlook on life, your simple joys from small things. Totally amazes me how much quilting you accomplish and every quilt is beautiful. I've not taken the time to tell you "thank you" for creating the HeartStrings group and all that you do to keep it a safe and happly place to be.

Mary, I hope you and Deb are having a great time! I stop by everyday...and try to comment more than once a week. Still getting up the courage to do wonky feathers tho! lolol

Mary I love your blog and I've had fun reading your experiences moving north. I'm in Thunder Bay ON just north of the MN Border. Your quilts really inspire me.

Idaho Quilter said...

I read your blog daily and leave comments often, I look forward to your post you have so many irons in the fire at one time. I like to check my count to so stop by for a visit and a comment.

deputyswife said...

Hi Mary!

I am still here. Just pure laziness keeps me from commenting sometimes...

Lindah said...

HI Mary!
You write one of my favorite blogs, so I guess it is odd that I don't comment more often. Thanks for all the inspiration I receive from you as you share your quilts. I am in a similar situation: My kids are grown; I'm retired (sort of); quilting for charity is what I do. I'm trying to squeeze in a personal quilt once or twice a year, but basically, quilts for charity is my thing. I appreciated your post on a similar perspective recently.
Blessings,
Linda H

Hi Mary-
I click here at least once a day, so last month I guess I was responsible for 31 of those hits.
You are extremely inspiring, with your beautiful quilts, and your tireless productivity. Thanks so much.

You have a fantastic blog and I'm happy to see that you're getting more and more visits.

doni said...

I've been following your blog quite a while. It's great and just the type of quilts that attract me! Scrap and patchwork.

I also love seeing picture of Mpls - I used to work at MCC off of Loring park - it sure looks different now - but it reminds me of then too.

Thanks for all the awesome patterns and techniques you post on your blog and to Stashbusters - great ideas!

Mary, I read your blog often but I must confess, I don't believe I have ever posted a comment. I do enjoy your posts!

SueR said...

Good Morning Mary,

I read your blog frequently throughout my day (could I be a major contributor to your January stats?). I've enjoyed following you as you create your projects!

Marilyn said...

Mary,
I read your blog and have it listed as a blog of note on my blog. Thanks for keeping us inspired.

Darlene said...

I visit your blog everyday (sometimes more often). I find you to be very inspiring!

Ruth's Place said...

I have to confess to checking my stats too and wondering about the people who come everyday and don't comment.

I think I've told you that your blog was the first quilting blog I ever read.

Marianne said...

Okay already, I confess, I've been lurking. I visit quite regularly. Enjoy your blog BTW.

Anita - aka Granny Patches said...

Hi Mary I read your blog as often as I can. I especially like the pictures of the quilts taken on the balcony.

Morah said...

I don't get it either...I too read my stats....I get one maybe two comments. BIG SIGH!!!! Maybe I'll make a similar post on my blog...seems to have worked!

GailM. said...

I've been reading your blog for about a month. I found you through Quiltville. I got the pajama quilter DVD and I'm reviewing it now. I'm afraid, I'm not as fluid with my domestic as you, but I have free motioned some wonky feathers and I'm getting the hang of it. Your work is inspiring...

Rose Marie said...

I've been visiting your blog once a week for over a year now and am always eager to see what you are up to! Love your work .... there is so much inspiration that you share.

Evelyn aka Starfishy said...

I don't really know how to watch my blog stats, but I did put a little trial map on my blog this week - DH has been having fun keeping track of the countries - 14 of them so far. I might not keep it, but it is very interesting to see!

Cheers!
